A Waihee man was arrested Sunday night after he allegedly used a metal table to shatter a dining room window and threw other objects, injuring his 12-year-old son, police said.
Jose Tabisola Jr., 34, left the residence when he realized police had been called. He was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving when officers located Tabisola driving his pickup truck in Waiehu Terrace, police said.
Bail was set at $16,200 for Tabisola. He was charged with two counts of abuse, second-degree assault, seven counts of attempted second-degree assault, first-degree criminal property damage, driving under the influence of alcohol and resisting an order to stop a motor vehicle.
Police said Tabisola was arguing with his 34-year-old wife and son in their residence at about 8:10 p.m. Sunday before she pushed Tabisola outside and locked the door. Tabisola picked up a metal table that was outside and used it to shatter the dining room window near where the boy was standing, police said. Then he went to the front of the house and kicked in the front door, police said.
Tabisola threw a wooden barstool and glass picture frames at the boy, police said. The objects didn't hit the boy, but one picture frame struck a wall and shattered, causing glass debris to hit the boy, who suffered a laceration on his lower back, police said. He was treated by medics at the scene.
The woman refused treatment for a small laceration to her right cheek and swelling, police said.
Police officers who were on the way to the residence saw Tabisola leaving in his pickup truck and unsuccessfully tried to stop him.
At about 8:30 p.m., officers were sent to investigate a report of disorderly conduct in the Waiehu Terrace area involving a man in a pickup truck matching the description of Tabisola's truck, police said. Tabisola was located and arrested.
